Emily Shaw – Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design

Emily Shaw

Emily Shaw is the newest member of the Centre’s team! As Emerging Curatorial and Programming Coordinator, she works directly with the Executive Director to research and develop curatorial themes for an annual exhibition program for 2023. She also proposes and supports artistic and educational programming and identifies and drafts funding applications for the Centre.

A graduate of Mount Allison University’s Fine Arts program, Emily is an interdisciplinary artist, writer, and humorist. She credits her love of craft to the numerous craft fairs attended on her home of Prince Edward Island (the other island). She loves all things textiles, writing, and her sweet geriatric dog Robert Gordon.
